C's slip to 4th in power rankings

The Boston Celtics continue to tumble in the latest edition of Marc Stein's ESPN.com NBA power rankings.

Stuffed behind the Cavaliers, Lakers, and Magic, Boston slips to No. 4 this week. Writes Stein: "Injury issues have started earlier this season. The list of health worries is a lot longer than last season's, too. You're seeing why we came into the season saying Boston's vulnerabilities worry us more than Orlando's."

Here's a week-by-week glance at the Celtics' ranking

this season.

John Hollinger's latest statistical rankings seem to confirm the placement, with the Celtics fourth there as well (though behind a San Antonio Spurs team it beat on their home court earlier this season).
